Without artefact removal
With Planmeca ARA artefact removal algotrithm
The Planmeca ARA™ metal artifact removal algorithm is the outcome of extensive scientific research and a vast amount of clinical patient data. It is a standard feature for all Planmeca CBCT imaging units.
Metal restorations and root fillings can cause streaks and shadows to appear in 3D images. The Planmeca ARA algorithm has been designed to efficiently remove these metal artifacts.
Planmeca ARA is very flexible to use. You can either activate it before imaging or utilise it manually after the exposure. If needed, artifact removal can be performed multiple times at different levels using the original exposure data.
The Planmeca ARA metal artifact removal algorithm only gets rid of unwanted artifacts – without weakening diagnostic value. The result is a crystal-clear 3D image free from shadows or streaks.
Planmeca ARA can be conveniently used together with the Planmeca Ultra Low Dose™ imaging protocol to capture artifact-free CBCT images at lower effective patient doses.
